Academic - Ag & Life Sciences Honor Societies


Xi Sigma Pi is the National Forestry Honor Society established in 1908 at the University of Washington. Xi Sigma Pi, ISU’s Alpha Gamma Chapter, emphasizes academic achievement and success in the forestry profession through service activities, fundraisers, and education. Forestry majors are selected based on a minimum GPA of 3.0 with 60 or more credits, 15 credits of which are forestry course work. We strive to maintain a professional image through our college and future careers.
